A Baltimore City man was arrested on Monday after he allegedly tried to steal keychains from the Home Depot store in Perring Plaza.
Kavon Dajuan Allen, 24, of the 1600 block of E. 25th Street, was arrested and charged with theft, burglary, second-degree assault and resisting arrest.
Allen allegedly tried to steal keychains from the store around 1:05 p.m. and was stopped by a security guard there, police said.
He then allegedly got into an altercation with that security guard, ran out of the store and broke into a home in 8700 block of Satyr Hill Road to evade police, according to police spokeswoman Louise Rogers-Feher.
Officers found Allen hiding in the corner of a bedroom and, when they tried to arrest him, he allegedly resisted, Rogers said.
Allen was initially held at the Baltimore County Detention Center but has since been released on $20,000 bond.
